Now showing on Boro official site..

Middlesbrough Football Club now also running with this statement...
"The EFL Board met yesterday to consider the feedback and subsequent implications of last week’s divisional club meetings, as the league continues to address the many complex financial and operational matters resulting out of the COVID-19 crisis, including how the 2019/20 campaign is concluded."

"Clubs are now required to give the matter further consideration, before the board formally proposes the appropriate regulation changes, which will then be voted on by all clubs."

EFL Chair Rick Parry - "“The board has always acknowledged that a single solution to satisfy all clubs would always be hard to find, but we are at the point now where strong, definitive action is needed for the good of the league and its members.”

Good point about the FFP. I wonder why EFL are delaying punishments for those that have broken FFP rules.

You also have clubs that are failing to pay players.

Macclesfield Town have already been handed a points deduction for failing to play and for non-payment of wage.

I cant help but feel for the clubs who may get relegated in this way or by some projected mathematical equation, even though it most scenarios it would benefit Boro.

I think the only genuinely fair thing to do would be to right off this season and start the league again with the same teams in each division.

Far too easy & sensible to do Terry, for all the "you have to promote etc" ,we are in totally unheard of times & the easiest solution is void it all , deal with the FFP fiddlers prior to next year & start again aug/sept , Leeds are desperate ,as they will fall foul of FFP next year big style when all the big wages etc come home to roost

Is it fair to start again?
The teams will be different - so many circumstances will change. There might not be any fans.
If we got relegated from a restart we would feel wronged.

One of the Barnsley co-owners has already said they will sue the EFL if sanctions for ongoing FFP cases that could have been enforced this season are deferred. Could all get very messy.

Got to remember when clubs sue the EFL they are effectively suing themselves because the EFL is a trade body made up of the clubs.

This season should be completed for the integrity of the sport. I don't see how you can move on to next season if you don't complete this season.

It wouldn't be fair for clubs miss out on promotion or for clubs to relegated because the season isn't completed, even if season gets decided on sporting merits to that point of the season it not what we want to see with some being winners and others losers on PPG.

If you are going null and void season's that more than 50% complete it becomes hard for people to invest they time and money into future season's.

I think EFL recommended framework is step in right direction to completing the season and it good to see that the EFL are consulting clubs and putting down some framework for the clubs.

Just my idea , we’ve all played 37 games , finish the season and start again when safe to do so with another 46 games, thus having an extended 83 game season.

Why do we assume that things will be ok again in August for next season to start?

We could just as easily be in the same boat when we get around to the anniversary of the last games played. If we started then we could just continue with the remaining fixtures of this season one year on. At this moment we cant predict any earlier restart with any confidence.

Of course if we are able to start in June we Would finish by the end of June. That would solve the problem about contracts being up before we start/finish again which doesn't seem to get mentioned. Seriously cants ee it happening.

I wonder how many grounds have seen their last fixture.

Frankly the only thing that should be of concern qs how many clubs there will still be around when this si all over.

How do you relegate clubs who may have abided by the rules, & yet allow the clubs who have fiddled FFP THIS SEASON , to be allowed in the same league NEXT SEASON minus pts. There can be no justification as pts were accrued by financial Doping. It will be a typical Rick Parry sham .......& we have experience of that

Just finish the season when we can.

I'd much prefer to mess up next season which hasn't even started than mess up this one which is part way through.

"Just finish the season when we can.

One idea would be to finish this season whenever, but to have maybe 6 smaller divisions next season (1x12, 5x16 maybe), thus allowing them all to have complete home and away fixtures, and complete the season in time while getting back on schedule for the 21/22 season.

I don't think that will happen because it greatly confuses TV contracts.

Also, the likes of Leeds might turn around and say what's the point, if even if they won the current championship, they'd still only be in the 2nd division next year. Well, I think the sporting integrity of this season would be upheld at least.

You are correct about things being different if we start playing the current season again Rob.

I have said previously that with teams having lost players and playing behind closed doors, the results will be a complete farce.
Better to freeze or void the season now.

I think ( could be well wrong) when fans are eventually aloud back into grounds, they will be reduced capacity and it will be season card holders only to start with.
In fact when this season starts ( next 4 weeks ish ) why not allow maybe a few thousand in ?
Maybe 500 each stand , spaced out ?
Or even a few hundred fans to start off and test ??
Basically I want it bad haha
I even walk round the Riverside most days for my exercise [8D]

I think Corna is bringing the chickens home to roost in terms of financal fair play. As club's were already operating at a loss before loss of income. Also I agree with the sentiment if you furlong staff you are transfer banned!

EFL New Statement for Championship
Championship bottom club Barnsley have written a furious letter to the EFL with reference to Derby County.

That's according to The Guardian, who say the Tykes have made it clear to League bosses that they will not accept relegation if the season is not restarted, citing the investigations into Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday as their reason.



Quote:

'Barnsley feel it would be unfair for them to be relegated while the EFL are yet to conclude on the investigations revolving around the Rams and the Owls and the sale of their stadiums, and whether their actions were an illegal loophole to comply with FFP sanctions.'

Ummmm!


'would like to think we're not in trouble, but we're chasing an American billionaire for 'investment' which was later described as a financial loan so the warning signs are there. We will see when this all falls out, I guess, but we seem to be one of the more high risk clubs in football. '

Oh dear.

Difficult to see a resolution to this as everyone, quite rightly from their individual club's dilligence point of view, will vote with pure self-interest.

That statement from Parry suggests he's putting the heavy word on clubs to start compromising but I can't see why they would. If you're not being promoted there's not much to gain from finishing the season. Likewise if you're bottom three or near enough, you'd push for the season to be voided and dodge the bullet.

Quite apart from player safety concerns it'll cost a fortune in money and hassle for all the safety requirements to play games in empty stadiums with no gate receipts. Extending player contracts is an issue. Any end to the season is surely open to legal challenges as the competition you entered doesn't really resemble the competition as it ended - whether that's a game every two days, playing in neutral stadiums, working out finishing places on an average points per game system, or losing half your players on 30 June.

I guess the kicker for many clubs will be if the TV money is worth it. I mean, they're not charities, much as many of us seem to think they are.

This desperate desire to ensure "sporting integrity" for the 2019-20 season is laughable.
There are so very many things that will be different if a deferred season is picked up again when crowds can be safely present.
It's a joke.

Conclude this season as pragmatically as possible and focus on the future.
The final irony would be the 2019-20 season still being played in 2021, to preserve sporting integrity...

The maximum deduction is 12 points.. then a further deduction of 9 points if an aggravated breach is found.

I can't see why they wouldn't 'throw the teams under the bus' protecting their own integrity but at the same time not changing anything or effecting the teams involved in any real way.

Derby - 12 50.68pts
Sheff Wed - 9 50.85pts
Reading - 9 50.65pts

All would finish above boro in a weighted points finish.
